While it’s always wise not to judge a book by its cover, we recommend making an exception when it comes to this limited-release beer from Jack Black’s Brewing Company. Its striking label and darkened, stout-shaped bottle echo the contents perfectly.
Brewed by the light of the full moon, the jet-black oatmeal stout offers a mouthful of butterscotch creaminess with just a hint of bitterness. While roasted malt forms the backbone, the addition of oatmeal and hops leads to a balanced, complex brew. Best savoured alongside a roaring fire and a pack of good friends.
